money away from medicare. would you like or not like about the affordable care at? >> access to affordable care is what i like. the two parties, the democrats and republicans, which i hope are replaced by more independents, they do not come to completely form when it comes to these major issues. major lobby groups like big pharmaceutical, the u.s. chamber of commerce, ama and even the aarp should get into the room and be forced to make -- they go into a room and are forced to make requirements that are not in the benefit of the people. we do not have a public option, which would have allowed people to not have a mandate and to have a public insurance provider. it was because of these different pharmaceutical and lobbyist groups. everyone is taking money from them. we need to stop that. >> governor cain -- king? do you want to answer that question? >> we should keep the affordable care act. it is helping a lot of people. i have a young men in the office who is 23 years old and covered by his parents' insurance. he was born with a tumor in his brain, not cancerous. because of a

. it is not just jobs. it takes $700 billion out of medicare. there is only one candidate for the united states senate tonight who has voted to cut medicare. i also believe that it increases the cost of health care. we are seeing that already come close to $3,000 increase in health insurance premiums. it is going to cause our rural hospitals to close. i worked on the health care improvement act. i do not mind if my kids are on my insurance. i want them out of my refrigerator, but i do not mind if they are on my insurance. i think people should be able to buy insurance across state lines. those things will help to control the cost of healthcare. the cost of health care is the real problem. >> i am very proud of the work we did to reform health care in this country. a father came up to me in the middle of that debate and encapsulated what it meant for his family. he said, my daughter has epilepsy. when she pops out in her coverage and is no longer eligible because she's too old, there is not a single insurance plan that will take care. that is what health insurance reform means to me, he said. we

on the banks across the economy, medicare vouchers. millionaires will get one of the largest tax cuts ever while middle-class families pay more. that is what mitt romney wants to bring here. remember that when you go here. host: back to your calls. if there is an election dispute, what happens next? jim is on the republican line from alabama. caller: i just had a quick comment about some of the postings that i saw you had on the facebook posting about saying if obama were not elected there would be riots in the street. i really do not believe that it will be an election dispute. i think mitt romney is probably going to win overwhelmingly. i think every honest american 2016 go see the obama movie or rented on the redbox. i do not know what is wrong with america. people believe they do not have to go to work and make a living now. expect the government to supply their living for them. host: thank you for the call. are we a democracy or a republic? if we end the alleged world college will be a democracy -- eventual tyranny. gale on the independent line. caller: high. what i find absolutely s

it would charge those of medicare and extra six to $400 a year. i talk to people all over this district. they cannot afford an additional $6,400 out of pocket. are we going to do it on the backs of workers such as those upton to freeport to jobs are getting set to china? because there are tax incentives to do that? or are we going to continue to give tax breaks for big oil at the expense of middle class families that are going to be asked to pay $2,000 more under the ryan budget plan that my opponent supports. $100 billion and a savings every year. the report is sitting on a shelf. it has a proposal such as merging the small business administration with the department of commerce. it has proposals like getting rid of redundant services. for instance, job training programs. there are 44 redundant job training programs that we can do away with. >> the same questions with specifics justice, schilling. >> i believe you start with the top and lead by example. my opponent talks about the mail as i said. i invested less than 50 cents per constituent in the district. we spent money communicatin
